Potts’ Bible Proper Names:

Who overturns the foundation; stern; severe:―title of a Persian governor, Ezra 2:63. {Qui evertit fundamentum}

From Manners and Customs of the Bible:

This was the title of the Persian governor of Judea. Gesenius derives the word from the Persian torsh: “severe,” “austere,” which would make the meaning equivalent to your Severity. He compares it with the German gestrenger Herr, (that is, your “Worship”; but, literally, Severe Master,) a title which was formerly given to the magistrates of the free and imperial German cities. The English have a corresponding expression: “most dread Sovereign.”
